What is a Backdrop?

Backdrops, sometimes called step-and-repeat banners, are large format print backgrounds designed for taking photos. Printed on backdrops can be full-color graphics and images, text, logos, and almost any other design. The prints, typically on vinyl or fabric, have matte finish to prevent reflection. They can be one-time use but are also durable enough for storage and re-use.
Backdrops can be placed in several different settings. They can be set up at events, providing a spot for guests to have their photos taken for memories or social media. Photographers can also use them to provide a background for their photoshoots. You may see backdrops in NYC at red-carpet events, dance clubs, photography studios, movie theaters, and weddings.
